The Baltimore Ravens continue to be snake-bitten at tight end.
Ed Dickson will miss extended time after an MRI showed a slight tear in his hamstring. Dickson was injured during Sunday's practice.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Dickson will be "out a week or so." The Ravens' Twitter page -- perhaps rightfully more conservative -- relayed that Dickson will be out of action "a couple of weeks." Harbaugh, however, expects Dickson to be ready for the season opener.
"It's going to be a matter of time, but it's not going to be a long time," Harbaugh said.
Either way, this isn't good news for the Ravens, who have been adjusting their game plan following Dennis Pitta's season-ending hip injury suffered last week. The team had hoped to use Dickson in a Pitta-like "move" role, but those plans are on hold for the time being.Around The League Podcast is now available on iTunes! Click here to listen and subscribe.
